A powerful replacement for Leaf Storm or Frenzy Plant?

0 votes

I have a Serperior in Black with the Ability Overgrow. Its SA and Attack are pretty even, so it knows both Leaf Storm and Leaf Blade. I do not want to change Leaf Blade, but I will consider it if you have a good reason for me to. The problem is, Serperior knows Leaf Storm AND Frenzy Plant, and I want to replace one. So do I go with more Power and pause(Frenzy Plant), or less Power and Stat drop(Leaf Storm)??
P.S. the stat drop from Leaf Storm doesn't matter much, because Frenzy Plant is the only other Special Move.

Moveset:
Leaf Storm
Frenzy Plant
Dragon Tail(will not replace)
Leaf Blade

Thanks in advance

Mono-Grass type moveset? I know this is ingame but still thats not too good.

How about this instead:
-Coil
-Dragon Tail
-Leaf Blade
-Return

Coil raises your Attack,Defense and Accuracy, Dragon Tail is coverage, Leaf Blade is Stab and since its your starter it will probably love you so Return gets a nice boost.

I think you should keep leaf storm because it does a great deal of damage and lowers special attack. And no pause.

You should replace frenzy plant with coil or you can just leave it.

I can suggest Growth over Frenzy Plant. Growth ups both offensive stats, and you can boost the drop from Leaf Storm back up. It will up Leaf Blade's power as well.

Like Mew I also suggest Growth over Frenzy Plant and Giga Drain over Leaf Storm so it would look like this

Moves:
Growth
Giga Drain
Dragon Tail
Leaf Blade

You need this moveset for serperior:
Leaf Blade
Giga Drain
Coil
Dragon tail

leaf Blade is just plain strong.
Giga Drain for recovery.
Coil for stat improving
Dragon tail for finisher move.

It's Black1, not Black2, so it can't learn Aqua Tail.
Well, it can trade to Black 2 and trade back.
